Flexographic printing is a method of printing that has been developed to ensure the easy printing of labels for the food industry. It has many potential uses, but its most practical advantage is that it can be used more or less like a classic printing press – since it’s a method that allows us to print on almost any type of surface you can imagine.
Compared to other printing processes, flexography has a few important advantages that makes it have the upper hand in most instances:
- Unlike practices such as litography, flexographic printing makes use of a far greater variety of inks that can be used to produce the desired effect.
- It’s also known that flexographic printing is extremely versatile when it comes to the materials it can be printed on. From plastic and aluminum foil, to brown paper, acetate film and several other materials, flexography makes it easily possible to paint your label, message and suggestive marketing-related images on virtually anything.
- The recent history of the practice also points to laminated labels. Laminate applications for flexography can ensure that labels last far longer and that any damage will not penetrate to the actual ink as easily.
Many believe that flexographic printing done by a local Colorado custom label printing company is the future, and that it can and will lead to similar printing methods being developed. With the help of modern technology and fast, high end printers, it seems that we really are on this path.
